Tyre wear alert
Many of the peoples will not aware about the tyre wearing. Most of the peoples only fill the petrol & maybe change the oil periodically. They didn’t even check the battery condition, tyre pressure etc.
Anyway here I describing about a a display board can alert the driver about tyre Wearing & when it will need to replace. Normally the legal limit for car tread depth is
1.6mm (across 75% of the tyre). However the deeper the tread the more grip you have, replace your tyres when the tread is less than 3mm.So in this case i plan to insert a tiny
magnet will located inside the tyre ( at the level of 3mm tread ) and sensor which can detect magnetic waves fitted in the car body ( just above the tyres).see the attached image.
So when our tyre will reach the tread depth of 3mm, this magnet tip will appear outside the tyre and the sensor will catch the magnetic waves from the magnet. This sensor will alert this to the Microprocessor & it will display the warning message in the display board (Display board will be located in meter console).
In this display board ( see the attached image) four warning light representing four tyers. Its named with “FL”, “FR”, “RL”&“RR”. FL means Front left side tyre , FR means front right side,RL means rear left side tyre and RR means rear right side respectively. Whenever any one of this light Will on, there’s a display message will appear in the display board that alerting you to replace tyre.
There’s a tyre mileage meter also located in between the tyre wear indicators. Whenever u replace The tyre you must changed the mileage meter reading to be “zero”,
it can adjusted through the button nearby. In the bottom of display board tyre pressure indicator also attached.

thx for the valuable comments max.its highly appreciated. User3148
yea cool idea. you could also just have an app where you enter the date when you changed the tyres and the distance will be calculated instead of your magnetic sensors. I like you patent like drawing. Although i think it will be a little problem as the magnetic flux will also be emitted when it is within the tyre, the few millimeters rubber wont make a big difference. you could try a laser to detect the depth of the profile as reference the high and low parts of the laser. but you d still have the problem that the tyre on a shock absorber. so you have a vertical movement you d have to filter! (some reference laser or so). With a visual(laser) check you won't have the need to cooperate with tyre manufacturers! User2815
I hope this will works along with the co-operation of tyre manufacturers. User3148

Hey arun, I am sorry for missing to welcome you at our contest! As I am not online all day long, because of other projects I am involved, it happenes soemthimes that I am not able to personally welcome all contestants. So just to clarify again, I didn't welcome you on purpose, it was just a matter of having too less time :) Hope this answer is ok for you?

Anyway, tonight I'll get up to date with the comments. It will be tough, but I think I owe it to the community: P User2830

Hi Mr. Peter, thx for ur comments sir, I am trying to improve my app, but the problem is am not very gud in flash & the time to learn it now is hard for me.Am a Senior CAD designer & working in 12-14/7.So its hard to find time for learning flash.Anyhow, i will try my best.Once again thx for ur valuable comments User3148
Hi arun, you are very active. Try to improve the apps a little bit more! User2838
Thanks for your comment arun. But I see a problem in the tihings that you said. For example, to control blood pressure, we would need more than an app :). And we have to remember that we have a car, not an ambulance ;) User2830
Thanks for your visit to my profile and also the comment User3186
This is the 1st application from me.I just created by a sample program.Anyway hope it works gud User3148
Thanks sir, ur comments are more valuable & its highly appreciated. User3148
Hi, thanks for these nice ideas. Maybe you could focus a little bit more on infotainment devices and apps that could be possible without having new sensors in the car. Would be great to have your creativity on these contest topics. User2838
